It is with enthusiasm that I submit my letter of intent to serve as special education coordinator in your district. My recent and past experiences make me a great fit for this position.

Special Education Equity would also come into effect in 1975 with the PL 94-142 law. This ensured that every student with a disability (millions of students) would be guaranteed a acceptable education.
